What is NixOS?
NixOS is a Linux distribution with a unique approach to package and configuration management. Built on top of the Nix package manager, it is completely declarative, makes upgrading systems reliable, and has many other advantages.

I think NixOS is a very interesting and useful Linux system, but a bit difficult to handle, since it doesn’t work like any other Linux system. I.e. the installation to hard drive is very special, the file system is different and NixOS...

A Grub problem

Posted 04-13-2020 at 05:03 AM by malghwell
Tags grub, linux

By mistake, I deleted some of the snapshot which I recovered the /etc before I reboot. When I rebooted it comes to Grub screen and stopped there. The /boot directory is deleted but still there is another snapshot which contains the /boot. I could see the other boot directory but I don't know the Grub commands to boot from it. Once I boot I will recover back by copying it to the /boot but now I need to login. Any help?

1) Server setup is simpler. Grub nfsroot only requires an nfs server. You do NOT need a tftp server, nor do you need a customized DHCP server.

Posted 04-26-2015 at 10:15 PM by mrknify

Today I installed Slackware via an sd card. It did not go smoothly.

Booted my LG x110 with the card, now my little netbook is my toy, I use it to install all manner of things before migrating them out. Previously I had installed two versions of Oz Unity on my netbook, they installed to duel boot with the netbooks Windows XP using grub. more recently I had been using Arch Linux via usb install to a SD card but that...

Slackware64 ext4 grub installation trick/guide

Since 13.0, Slackware has an official x86_64 port. There is no grub package by default, and if you simply try to install it, you will get an error. A lot of users, including me, prefer grub over lilo.

It is not so much difficult to install grub on Slackware64, and I finally managed to do it. So it I thought it will be helpful for those who are new to Slackware64 and wants the old grub back. Hence the guide. Hope this will help you guys.

First, we have to keep two things
